The best new product was a malleable wood.  I was not impressed with Creativation this year.  I guess I have so many products I am not using or am donating to a local school art teacher, that I thought it was all a lot of the same.  I make mini albums and cards so I wanted to see more paper lines.  Maybe they gave the show a pass this year.  Yes, I did see G45 and Stamperia.

I love interactive cards, so for me the new Lawn Fawn magic Iris die will be a must have. By the time it gets here to little old NZ, there will be heaps of samples made with it already.

I'm not so much into inking techniques, so will pass on alloys and embossing glazes etc. I have a few of the oxides, and love the blended backgrounds, but that's as far as my inking techniques go.

I loved the look of the Hero Arts layering sets, especially the lavender fields one. But again, not sure if we'll be able to get it here, so will have to look with envy.

Well, just to add a different company into the discussion <G>, I like Lawn Fawn a lot - and their new Feb release is HUGE!  They are one of the leaders in interactive dies and their newest one, Magic Iris Die cuts - opens like the iris in a camera, looks amazing and is definitely on my wish list.  I like how they continually support their interactives by releasing new sets to go with them.  Some of their new releases go with their older Reveal Wheel sets (think spin the wheel, see a new message or image in the window), and a new "Say What?" set for spring.  I know not everyone is into cutesy, but with nieces growing up, and a family who is always looking to see what new thing Auntie Joni has brought this time in a card, I enjoy showing off a little, plus I really like making the interactive sets.

The new embossing glazes from TH caught my eye, as did the new QuietFire (small Canadian company) gilding powders.  They released five last year - gorgeous and have five more coming out this year.  Definitely a must have - check them out!

I think yellows are hard - hardest imo to find just the right one.  I get being on the lookout for the perfect one.  Colorbox, I think it was, a long time ago, had one that I thought was really good, but they discontinued it, and when I ran out of the re-inker and my pad went dry I was SO sad.  I've not found it since.

My sense was a lot of new paper lines are out or will be, as there always are, but they’re not a frequent choice for videos.

As for his talking fast, I hadn’t noticed, maybe because slow talking causes me to shut down a video fast. It’s 100% fine to stop talking for a moment while waiting for the next step to narrate, and then speak normally. But to talk... like... this... to... match the video speed is nails on a blackboard. 

Or add fillers, like Laura Bassen does. But others love a blogger I no longer watch because of slow... talking. So YMMV.

My old eyes with extra issues like the contrast with black - or putting dark pieces on the white side. Great that there are varieties since one size does not fit all (ask my clothes).

I feel your pain - have you looked at Lawn Fawn's Lawn Fundamentals in Butter? Or is that still a bit too yellow? I think of butter as more of a cream with the barest hint of yellow, and at one point meant to look for that but didn't. 

I hear you about the hair.

Industrial workplace studies concluded that the most visually ergonomic color to work against is pale gray (no blue undertone) - like one of the light grays in a photography gray tone card. Black and white are extremes, even more so when reflective (glass). 

(We had to study that kind of stuff in a color program i was in.The international president/my old school instructor would have been appalled at our glass mats. But it's so smooth when blending inks onto cardstock!)

I'd buy a light gray glass mat in a heartbeat.

I just ordered one on ebay $2.99 w/free shipping.  Previously, I purchased a baby nasal bulb aspirator for $3 from Target, but I haven't tried it out yet.

I have TH large glass mat in my studio, luv it for when I'm card making. For my paint station, I purchased a tempered glass cutting board 15 x 12 for under $6 at Walmart, perfect for my liquid medium messes. It sits on top of a large lazy susan covered with butcher paper.

Now, why don't the makers of these mats know this??? You'd think they'd check this all out! So, do you have one mat or the other???

Mine is the Tim/black mat, since white/light colors work better for me against black, and black/dark colors are put against the smaller white area if needed, so it’s kind of a two-fer? The white removable mat has never been used. 

Studies about visual ergonomics and workers at workbenches putting widgets together probably aren’t almost anyone’s radar. But if during development just one person had remembered reading about visual ergonomics and color, maybe it would have turned out differently. I bet Tim Holtz would have thought it cool and used it as a selling point. 

I actually like Ranger mats, and you can buy it by the foot (from Joggles) to cover a table as shown in her videos, but seeing colors more accurately plus a brief very big sale on Tim mat at JoAnn made me jump. And I do like it. Clean up - on any glass mat - is super easy. I used expired Purell, which is what Tim used to demo, though now doesn’t show the brand. Any should be fine.

Neat! Would the size work for you?

The narrow grid lines on crafting glass mats are helpful for some crafters, and the size of the Tim mat - 23 or 24 x 14? - mattered for me.

I liked the idea of the malleable wood but I would never use it and I liked the Lawn Fawn iris Die, but how many cards would I make with that? I guess I'm more like you Vestamc, I have more than enough stuff to use and destash. It was fun to watch the videos though.

You know, I think not. It is 15" x 12" & the grid it displays is large, rather than smaller like the others too. I think one needs something to cover more table space than this. I don't like to get "messy" when crafting, but when I do, LOOK OUT! But, It was nice to find something in gray! LOL

Smile I attended Creativation...what are your questions?

I attended Creativation and can answer any questions you have. Most products won't be released until February and March. My personal favorites were the GinaK and RinaK Electro-pop products. I'll be carrying all those in my store next month. Tim Holtz did release some new colors but primarily demo'd his new blow tool. Simon was showcasing his new stamps and stencils. My other favorite was Concord & 9th rotating stamps. I will be carrying those too! Let me know any questions and I'll be happy to help if I can.

It says the color white under Product Info - maybe the grid lines are gray?!

I went back & looked & you are right. It looks white, but the name is:
"Vance 15" x 12" Gray Graphic Surface Saver Tempered Glass Cutting Board, 81512GG." I looked through the info. on it too, & nothing was said about white. The "white" was off to the side... Hmmm. I can't win for loosing! LOL Thought I found something! Anybody else find a gray one?

Concord & 9th has rotating stamps? Are they different than the turnabout stamps? I still don't get those turnabout stamps but I tried them when they first came out and got frustrated and never tried again.

Why, why, whhhhhyyyyyyy do I read these threads and then go and watch the videos???! I do not NEED more things that I "just can't live without"! I would have been perfectly happy not knowing these things exist. Now, they're calling my name, over and over .... Tim Holtz new inks, blower, cat stamp set, embossing glazes, embossing dauber, Stickles gel, some shimmery CS, a couple little tools ... Out of everything, at the very top of my list, something I TRULY need are some of the storage tins for Distress Oxide inks. The rest, I actually hope  my memory fails me and I can forget I saw them. I still have stuff from years ago I haven't cracked open or touched yet. lol

I'm SO jealous!!!  I love the Elecctro-Pop inks - I'm betting the foils and glitter glitz will be fabulous!  Rina is really coming into her own - it's been fun to watch her.

This made me laugh at what Tim might say! In many videos he was demoing the new Alloys to use with alcohol inks and new Distress Glazes - translucent heat embossing powders. The blower was used with the alloys/ alcohol inks.

She might mean their endless infinity die? Very cool. It can be used with any stamps, not just their birthday set.

Watching a video - like by Jennifer McGuire or others - can help with the turnabout stamps. It can be confusing at first.

But Concord & 9th’s Honeysuckle ink pad - yes, just that one color! - called me, though who knows what it looks like in real life. And Altenew’s gradient washi is gorgeous. I’m curious about the material of their big crafting mat, not that I want/need another.

There was something about a beading pick-up needle that you just push into the beads by Clover, but maybe the blogger was incorrect, since no one from Clover was there to speak with.

I can understand buying the iris die, because while it's possible to cut that one by hand from a template (we have a tutorial here and I've made several), it's a real pain. If I thought I'd make enough to justify the expense I'd be tempted by that one. But the "infinity" card...so long as you have a large circle die you can cut your own. It's exactly the same principle as the old-school never-ending card, but done with a circle instead of a square. Matching stamps, now, those could be good. That's always been the hardest part of a never-ending card for me, figuring out how to get them to work across the sequence of folds.

I’m backwards from you! I don’t need many birthday cards, and am not into making fun folds, but the instructional video showed a card made with a non-birthday stamp set, and I could imagine so many sentiments and images. So I bought just the die.

Maybe I’m kidding myself and half a sentiment could be on one layer and the other half buried elsewhere. 

Tons of videos have been fun to watch, but this die, a couple Alloys and Distress Glaze embossing powders are it for this year, though the Iris die was a little tempting. Off to watch the “never ending” tutorial you linked to - thanks!

Seth Apter is known as an amazing, magical instructor, always willing to help anyone. I’m ashamed to say I have not made it to one of his classes, given that he visits two shops not far from my area. For mixed media folks - or anyone who likes some different mediums for their cards - heres a video with his new products at Creativation, including nail polish (not really!). Also Izink, Wow and more:

I should have added that a Wow product that sparked joy is their sticky embossing ink (their version of Versamark type ink) that comes in a small nail polish type container with a brush! If I recall, they partnered with or were inspired by Seth Apter for that one.

Kathy, they all seem to think there is only one city in Texas: Dallas.

Mind you I've not watched all the video but thus far I haven't found anything that is a have to have. Most everything is nice but pretty much eh not going to spent $$ on it.

Yeap, tell someone you're from Fort Worth and 9 times out of 10 the response is, "oh you're from Dallas".  ... did I say that, uh NO.  On the insult scale that isn't even a 10, it's way off the chart...
